Rob Thomas, Plain White T’s

When: Sat., July 11, 8 p.m. 2015

“Smooth,” Rob Thomas’ 1999 collab with Carlos Santana, is getting a revival on the meme circuit right now for whatever reasons of nostalgia and Matchbox-bashing humor. If he’s tuned into it, it’s hard to imagine he’d be pissed — any hype to extend Thomas’ multi-platinum rock-pop career is blessed hype. Pop-punkers Plain White T’s took it down a gear for the ’06 single “Hey There Delilah,” a No. 1 hit that teetered over the edge of songwriting into perfection and into maudlin nausea.

Price: $49.50-$100
